Ameera is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo next to his taxi.

Ameera is a 23-year-old young woman. She is married and a mother to one son and one daughter.

For the past three years, Ameera's husband has been driving a taxi, which has been a profitable project and the only source of income to the family. However, the family needs more support to cover their expenses. Ameera is requesting a 1,500 USD youth loan from FATEN to help her husband cover the costs of repairing and painting the taxi. This will increase the taxi capacity to work extra hours and enable Ameera's husband to take additional internal and external requests, which will improve the family's income positively.
